You could had tried merging two checkouts (one of each URL) into a
third dir, probably faster, SVN is rather slow for operations that

If you want, I can commit all files with Unix EOLs so you can try
merging again (total 147 changed, in all dirs except extern/). It took
a lot more checking out than fixing.
